If someone starts making fun of your kelly green pants, just ask if their legs are warm. If that doesn't shut them up, ask how much their warm pants cost. In the event that that doesn't work, ask how much their warm pants weight. If that doesn't work, just say "At least my pants are Green!" (like, green being environmentally friendly, since they were recycled from a previous use........)
Great work! I recently finished a pair insulated full side zip pants from the Liberty Ridge windpants pattern; but mine are just black - you definitely get some man points for wearing them!
I also have a kelly green Ray Jardine quilt that I sewed a little too narrow.... maybe I'll have to turn it into something else too - thanks for the inspiration.
